Ideas for Styling a Pixie Cut w/ No Sides | Video Tutorial | The Outfit Repeater

Hair I Go Again!

I did it again! My hair is back to a pixie cut after I went and chopped a good chunk of hair. It’s currently shaped as a gamine pixie with no sides. (I couldn’t wait to gush about it on my instagram!) I’m no stranger to a pixie cut, having one once before and growing it out, but shaving the sides is completely new territory to me.

It’s been about a month or two of growth and I’ve finally figured out some stellar ways to style it.

Break out your favorite styling products and watch as I dazzle you with my ideas for styling a pixie cut. I’m no hairdresser but I can work magic with nothing more than some mousse, hairspray, molding wax, and a comb.

My video will take you through every step I follow to shape my hair from wet and curly to dry and straight. (Messy look from thumbnail not included)

Favorite Haircut, Favorite Product

It’s safe to say I’m in love with this haircut. Right now, I can’t get enough of TIGI Bed Head Manipulator Matte Gel – it’s my new holy grail item. Worth the splurge here on Target!




  1. You should do a faux-mohawk! I did that once when my hair was shorter and it was really, really fun.
    I LOVE the short hair on you. It really enhances your already beautiful features. And has sass. It’s pretty good on you.

  2. Yes I should!! It’s on my to-do list right after I find a good product. I’ve been experimenting with my curls and have found sort of a method to make them into a faux hawk and it is FABULOUS! I’m definitely gonna have to make an outfit post around them soon.

    Super-useful video, and you look awesome/gorgeous with a pixie cut! My little sister’s boyfriend recommended Old Spice Forge Putty to me… I was skeptical at first (won’t I smell like a teenage boy?), but it’s now my all-time favorite. 🙂

  4. Thanks, Mia!

    It was scary for me and this wasn’t even my first time! haha After a couple days you start to get used to it and can’t imagine your life without short hair. You could always slowly chop your hair working your way upwards and then stop when you get uncomfortable? That works for a lot of people!

    You are super adorable! I absolutely love how you own your hair! I got a pixie cut a few months ago and I am always looking for simple ways to style my hair. Love the video!

    Thank you so much for the video! The pixie cut is relatively new to me and even though I love it, I’ve battled through styling it, your video really helps!

    Great video! I’m always looking for new ways to style my pixie. I struggled finding a good wax, but am now in love with mister pompadour bees wax–smells great, very strong hold and a nice matted finish!

    I have been using Sexy Hair Style Spray Clay and Play Dirty. Spray Clay is matte finish and Play Dirty is shiny. I like that I can spray them into my pixie where I want the texturizing. I tend to use SC the most, with PD a little in the front for the little bit of shine. And I just discovered Big Sexy Hair Powder Play, which is my new go-to. I get much better lift at the roots using that and it doesn’t feel as heavy as other products. Love your pixie! Love my pixie!

    Great video! I can’t wait for my pixie to be your length.

    This may be a little late now, but I’ve like Old Spice’s Ricochet Fiber Wax (a nice light scent, not like traditional Old Spice) and Woody’s Hair Clay. The OS wax is thicker than other waxes I’ve tried and Woody’s is really thick—perfect for the faux-hawks or messy looks.

    Late suggestion but I just found this video on Pinterest. I had a pixie for two years and the best thing I ever used (and really the only product I use in my hair) is Kenra Hair Taffy. The stylist at my local Supercuts got them to carry Kenra products and used it on my hair one day. This stuff is amazing. It doesn’t feel gross, you can remold it when necessary, and best of all, it literally smells like candy. It’s a bit pricier than I normally spend on hair care ($21 but I’m cheap) but worth it. I highly recommend it, and I’m extremely picky about using styling products. If you find a local salon that carries it, definitely ask them to demo it for you.
